Damage to Democracy: The 2016 Election and Rhetorical Judgment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Roderick Hart provides a useful set of criteria through which he argues we can better assess elections and their usefulness to democracy. While finding some points of agreement with Hart's assessment of the 2016 election, this essay takes up the question of whether his criteria advance our understanding of elections as contributing to the practice of rhetorical and political judgment.
